Editorial Reviews


"…should be required reading by all industrial/chemical plant managers from supervisors to the top manager in the organization." (Journal of Hazardous Materials, July 19, 2007)

From the Back Cover

What are accidents? Are they just statistics that your safety department sends to you monthly and which you glance over and ask yourself whether the safety professional you have employed is doing his job right?
Aimed primarily at top and middle management, this book adopts the new approach to preventing serious incidents rather than minimal compliance with regulations. It takes you step-by-simple-step to show how accidents can be avoided with little effort and money, allowing you to reap the rewards such an injury-free culture brings: higher worker morale, better product quality, and maximum productivity. Plus the inner satisfaction of reaching a goal that is worth striving for, namely zero accidents.

Kishor Bhagwati studied chemistry and physics in Bombay, and chemical engineering in Germany. He worked several years as project engineer, development chemist, project manager, plant manager, government relations manager, chief product steward and director of environment, health and safety for the European division of a major US chemical company. After that he started consulting in safety and environmental management. He has given many lectures and seminars, has taught at universities, was Chairman of the European Safety Council, and works today as an independent consultant for safety and environmental management near Lausanne in Switzerland.
